CSS hanging indent problems

I've written some basic CSS for a list, with a background image.

But the text's hanging indent is off.  I want all the wrapping text to be flush with the text above it...
.moduletableheadbox {
	width: 309px;
}
.moduletableheadbox h3 {
	background-image: url(/images/box/bg_left_small_header.gif);
	height: 31px;
	width: 309px;
	color: #FFF;
	position: relative;
	top: 0px;
	clip: rect(auto,auto,auto,auto);
	margin: 0px;
	padding-top: 0px;
	padding-right: 0px;
	padding-bottom: 0px;
	padding-left: 0px;
	text-indent: 12px;
}
.moduletableheadbox ul.latestnewsheadbox  {
	background-image: url(/images/box/bg_left_small_content.gif);
	color: #FFF;
	list-style-type:disc;
	list-style-position:inside;
	margin-top: 0px;
	margin-right: 0px;
	padding-bottom:15px;
	font-size: 15px;
	text-indent: 15px;
	margin-left:0px;
	padding-left:0px;
}
.moduletableheadbox a.latestnewsheadbox {
	color: #FFF;
}
 
<div class="moduletableheadbox">
